Re: Changes

  • I had no changes after LO1, but this pregnancy has left me with some stretch marks, tailbone pain resulting in sciatic nerve pain. I also feel like my hips are way out of alignment and causes pain and discomfort in my knees. In general, I feel like I am 70 years old now!!!!

  • Stretch marks and super flab on my belly

  • Stretch marks, belly fat, and my hips spread (as if I didn't have wide enough hips to begin with!). At least my weight is fairly evenly spread so even though I'm still carrying an extra 20 lbs., I don't look too fat. 
  • Body wise my hips are huge now. They were 36 inches before I got pregnant and now they're 41 inches and its bone, not fat. How you move bones back? I also have hair on my upper lip now. However, the most frustrating change is not physical. I never had anxiety before I got pregnant. I got horrible anxiety second trimester and although its like 95 better its still lingering and things that never made me nervous before, like flying and elevators, make me nervous now.
  • The main thing is the csection scar and numbness that comes along with that. I hate when my scar is itching and I can't even tell if I'm scratching the right part! Other than that I think my hips have widened. I've lost all my pregnancy weight and weigh less than I did before pregnancy, however nothing fits like it used to.

  • I lost all the baby weight, but my stomach muscles went to hell so my belly is flabbier than it ever was before I was pg. I also have much wider hips and less full boobs. So nothing I'm in love with, haha. Except the baby!

  • A few stretch marks, bigger boobs (and i didn't BF), and I actually have hips now!  I look better now than I did before being pregnant (tooo thin).  Since being pregnant and giving birth I am a lot healthier and actually love my body now!...except the stretch marks.  The only other thing that bothers me is sometimes I get a pain in my lower back, feels like my spine goes weak.
  • Belly and boobs, and stretch marks on both. I have a lovely belly overhang and my breasts now rest against my ribcage... Also, one nipple now points slightly more downward than the other. So, that's pretty cool...

  • I would say the csection scar is the biggest change. More pudge on my belly, but hopefully will be able to burn some of that off if I ever get motivated enough to start working out. Probably less perky boobs once I'm done BFing too. Bummer.

  • No stretch marks. This csection scar is a bit better than the last  - still red and raised but not as angry looking.

    Body shape, underneath the blubber!, is still the same I think. Ill have  better idea of how I shape up in about a year or so once I stop BF and have a chance to see what working out can improve.

    I aint throwing in the towel just yet!

    I look completely the same as before I had this baby, just a fuller chest (about a cup is all).  I don't look like my pre-baby self, but  #4 didn't really change me much more than I already had from becoming a mother.  In general I am ten pounds heavier than pre-baby (but also almost ten years older), not as firm of a stomach, and bigger hips as well.

    This made me laugh out loud! Not at you though, with you. ;-) Mine definitely aren't the same either, as in like twice as big - and I'm not talking about the entire boob, just the nipples. Lol!

  • I have LOTS of stretch marks. And I can already tell my boobs are going to be pretty saggy after I'm done BF'ing. Fun.

  • Belly flub. Birthing hips. This totally didn't happen the first time around. Oh yeah, and when I'm through breastfeeding, my boobs will look like gym socks with a marble at the bottom. Gross.

    IMO the boob thing is caused by the rapid enlargement of them during pregnancy. I'm sure breast feeding doesn't help but I think the "sag" is mostly from pregnancy and then losing the weight.

    With my first I went from "a" to "d" in like 4 months time, with big red stretch marks. That's a recipe for saggy pancake boobs if I every heard one.

    This time, since I haven't lost the weight totally, there is less saggy skin so I actually look better. I just don't feel better because I'm not as fit.

    All my "body damage" was done with my first though. I was very thin, pre-preg, and gained 60 lbs.

    Oh, yeah, my nips changed in the first tri - I almost forgot about that! Only now they look like googly eyes Stick out tongue

  • I'm having a hard time with my post baby body. I had a c section so the scar is numer one. Plus the ugly flab that is my belly now. No more nice tones abs for me.

    My boobs are way bigger but I BF so that's expected. And I don't mind them. My butt was fuller while pregnant and now it's completely gone.

    I'm so proud of what my body did to create DS but what I'm left to work with is tough for me.

  • I expected the flabby belly, so it doesn't bother me as much as I thought it would. I did NOT expect the stretch marks. I though I was going to make it through unscathed when I hit 8 months without any, but the last few weeks did me in and they seemed to continue to get even worse in the week or so after birth. They are starting to fade a bit, but I feel self conscious and ugly in front of my DH.

  • Stretch marks have definitely been an unpleasant post-preg issue. I thought I was in the clear too bc I went into labor with none but then they appeared AFTER i gave birth! Um what kind of cruel and unusual punishment is that? Did this happen to anyone else?!

     Also, my boobs are just weird. Saggy and wobbly and weird. They didn't grow too much during pregnancy so I attribute to bfeeding. Small prices to pay for my sweet boy, I suppose.

  • I have porn star boobs, at least in terms of size, but definitely not perkiness. The rest of me is more or less the same, just flabbier and less toned.
